Athlon II X2 220, Phenom 1035T shipping in EU

Written by Fudzilla staff


Limited availability
AMD’s no-thrills Athlon II X2 has started shipping in Europe. It is a Regor-based dual-core processor clocked at 2.8GHz, basically a faster iteration of the 215.

The 220 is listed at €44+ and like the 215 it offers quite good value and decent performance for an entry level part.

Although AMD won’t introduce many new processors this summer, several interesting parts will eventually appear. The 2.6GHz six-core Phenom II X6 1035T is one of them. It’s still not available in retail, but some OEMs have started offering it as an option in their systems.

If it hits retail, the 1035T should be the cheapest six-core on the market, costing about four times less than the cheapest Intel six-core. The 2.7GHz 1045T should also appear sometime in this quarter.

Another quite unique AMD processor is the Athlon II X2 260u, a 1.8GHz dual-core with a 25W TDP. It’s still not available, but it will end up quite pricey, around the €150 mark.

If by "four times less" you mean one fifth, that's a bit high. The 1055T already costs one fifth of what 980X does and 1035T should be cheaper.

Slower processors! Just what AMD needs now!

These will deservedly find their way into low-end boxes from Acer and HP.

I'm in fact looking forward to slower and cheaper six core CPUs.. they'll probably overclock pretty well, and could be best bang for the buck for video encoding needs..

Actually Intel now sells a slightly cheaper six core called the i7 970.

@BernardP

Low power consumption CPUs are a big market, and one that AMD has room to grow in. Intel's CULV CPUs are very popular and sell very well despite having low clocks because they have low power consumption.

If you want a fast CPU, AMD can also sell you a CPU with six cores of 3.2 GHz goodness.

In today's businesses where computing moves into clouds, having lower power-usage desktop system is the ideal path to go.

I actually run a 1055T - I use 6 cores for rendering and switch to 2 cores when surfing the net or standard work.O/C at 3.4Ghz and as low as 27 watts consumption on 2 cores on tickover.The best of both worlds
